Irreversible thermal cycling growth (or ratchet growth) of insensitive explosive formulations has been known for years. Traditionally it’s attributed to material texture and to anisotropic thermal expansion. Although this understanding has been accepted for a long time, we’re not aware of any model on the macroscale that connects these material properties to ratchet growth behavior. Thompson et al.

We present the design and evaluation of a non-intrusive packet delivery monitoring service on a Network-on-Chip (NoC) that focus real-time systems. Recent works show that using adaptive routing or optimization techniques are solutions to improve its latency. These strategies usually need to know the traffic behavior previously to make changes. A monitoring service is indicated as a solution to this issue, but since silicon consumption is a restriction in these projects, most of them use routers...
